Donations and Fundraising

As a local business we take seriously our responsibility to be an active part of our community; the farm has long-term relationships with a number of local educational and environmental organizations. 

We are approached on a daily basis to support so many worthy causes, from educational initiatives, to personal trials, to environmental causes. We see so many causes and groups that we want to support, yet as a small business, we cannot give to everyone who asks.

An idea for those of you who have fundraising and donation requests…

We want to work with you to organize a “shop local” fundraiser on the farm. There are two ways for your organization to team up with us:

 

DSC02995“Shop Day” Fundraiser

Have your members and followers shop for your organization. This is perfect for sports teams, schools, and small organizations with 200 people or less. For a Shop Day Fundraiser, we’ll create a special gift certificate for your group (in $25 increments). Tell all your friends to come in and order one. From each gift certificate sold within a given time frame, we will donate 10% to your organization.

“Private Evening Shop” Fundraiser

Host a private shopping evening and cheese tasting at the farm! By hosting an event at the farm store, 20% of the sales during the event are donated to your cause. Bonus: our private shopping events are BYO, so you get to shop with up to 20 of your favorite people, while sipping your favorite beverage. 

 

Start today! To explore a fundraising event with us, email cherrygrovefarmstore@gmail.com or call the office at 609-895-1502. If we decide to move forward, we will work with you to spread the word through social media and help you create a unique, memorable fundraiser!
